Blending question

Is it possible to make the following by blending:

I have a texture which is only grayscale. I want to render this texture on a quad in front of my scene. But I want to see through the white parts of the texture and not through the black parts. Can this be done by blending functions or do I need an alpha channel?



you can add it into the framebuffer, black * anything = anything.

edit: oups… you want the other way around… hum, no idea, you might subtract, but the best way is to use an alphachannel
